Week 11: Beat Detection in Python

In the hopes of beginning the sound-analysis part of my final project early, I used my microphone board to get sound input, and did analysis in Python. Specifically, using tkinter and taking input from last week's microphone board via the serial port, I took the input, performed a FFT on it, and graphed it on the computer.

Figure 4: While a low-pitched noise was playing. Noticeably centered to the lower frequencies.

My next step is to find some kind of noise filter, to make this graph cleaner.
